Why We Do It?

Posted on November 8, 2016

Firefighters put their lives on the line to protect other people’s property and lives.

One might ask, “Why do we do it? Why do we choose to take such dangerous work? Why do we expose ourselves to daily risk of injury or possible death?”

When there are fires, explosions and disasters, most people will flee and run away from it. Firefighters, however, run towards them.

When disasters strike, firefighters are there to save us. And most firefighters are volunteers.

We do it for our families, friends, neighbors, friends of friends, strangers, etc.

Because these people are what make up a fire department. These people are what make up our family.

It begins with a family. Family passed down from generation to generation…

And to future generations…

And to first generations of firefighters…

A family that will never be broken…

A family confronted by challenges on a daily basis…

We strive for perfection

We run into the fight

We stand together as One

And we will never forget why we do it

Members Needed!

The volunteer fire service needs your help! Your community does not have a paid fire department. It is 100% VOLUNTEER. That means as soon as there is a fire call, local residents in town stop what they are doing to provide emergency services for you. We are looking for committed, passionate, and enthusiastic persons. We will provide everything needed for you to excel in this profession. There is no other job like it. Once you try it, the satisfaction of protecting others and helping others is like no other feeling. Check out our “Contact Us” and “Membership Info” page…

Every Kids' Dream

Posted on June 12, 2016

“At an early age, children notice for the first time that big, red, loud, fire engine as it roars down a street. Like every kid, it is love at first sight!" Unless one is a firefighter, not many people get the chance to ride in a fire truck and experience lights and sirens first-hand. But last month, the Long Valley Fire Company raffled a fire truck ride to one lucky student from each elementary school in Washington Township at the Trick Tray Fundraiser. The lucky winners from Flocktown/ Kossman Road School, Cucinella School, and Old Farmers Road School got to ride in the fire truck to and from school this past week. The kids got to ride with several firefighters (and their parents) and experience lights and sirens when pulling into the schools. Everyone had a blast!
